are protesting? >> definitely built up resentment against the west and the united states exploding. another thing that may give people solace is some of these protests albeit explosive were relatively small. today's protest in cairo was about 2,000. last year you had hundreds of thousands. in sudan it was 5,000. it doesn't mean we shouldn't be alarmed, but they are not drawing everybody. >> jennifer: today the taliban attacked the allied base in afghanistan where prince harry is stationed. is that about him or the movie, or something else? >> it was absolutely about him. the taliban put out a statement saying we will kill prince harry. they were looking for him and going after him. >> jennifer: let's get to another really important nexus here which is iran and israel. first of all does this wave mean that iran is next to act up? >> no, i don't -- look you have had times where iran has had its own revolution in 2009. what iran could do is seize the distraction. the u.s. will be distractioned with this right now. there is an election and a major crisis in the middle east pr
is not enough to get him elected president of the united states, so he had to start off where he did, which was reforming and explaining the damage that has been done to the republican party and letting us know who he is. without doing that the next six weeks are completely unimportant to him. so we expect to see a little bit of a bump. one of the things i wanted to add, though this bump he receive is coming before barack obama speaks next week. he is a fabulous speaker. people like his wife and children, and the fact he is so supportive of women's rights in the workplace and reproductive rights, so i would think we would see any bump that mitt romney got this week probably evaporate after next week. >> jennifer: karl one more quick question, romney claimed that republicans had united behind the president following his election. take a quick listen. >> oh, god. >> jennifer: hang on. take a listen. >> romney: americans always come together after elections -- >> jennifer: well, i'm not sure if you caught it all but he was clearly saying that his party has supported the pres
liking his wife is not enough to get him elected president of the united states. he had to start off where he did, which was reforming and slaining the damage that's been done to the republican party and letting us know who he is. without doing that, the next six weeks are unimportant to him. we expect to see a little bit of a burch. one of the things i wanted to add though was that the bump he received was coming before barack obama speaks next week. barack obama is a fabulous speaker. he is a family man. people like his wife. people like his children. people like the fact that he is so supportive of women's rights in the workplace in addition to reproductive rights. i would guess that we're going to see whatever bump mitt romney got this week particularly among independents and women evaporate after the democratic convention next week. >> it will be interesting to see. karl romney also claimed at the beginning of his speech that republicans had united behind the president following his election. just take a quick listen. >> four years ago i know that many americans felt a fresh exc
: quickly moody's is warning that the united states is soon going to face a credit downgrade if they don't deal with this. what would that do to our retirement accounts and mutual funds and stocks if that hand? >> i'm not part of the rating agency. i sold my company to moody's so i have no insider information about the downgrade, but i read carefully what they say and pay close attention to it. and they are pretty clear if we get into next year and can't get a deal and do those things i discussed, they will probably down grade the debt. that won't cataclysmic, but it will hurt. they will download all of the debts. so we will see investment managers having to sell that debt, because they have contractors with investors saying that can't own debt at ratings that are lower than agreed. and that hurts everybody, 401k pension, because we all own stocks and bonds. so this is not a good thing. >> jennifer: all right. mark i really appreciate it. mark zandi, chief economist at moody's analytics. and up next, win the presidency, take back the house, keep the senate? we'll s
